Newly appointed Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Malison Ndau, has commended Nation Publications Limited (NPL) for its fairness and professionalism in its reporting.
The minister made the commendation today when he toured NPL head office in Blantyre as part of his familiarisation tour of establishments under his jurisdiction.
Ndau appreciated the good work NPL was doing in keeping Malawians updated with current affairs issues while also contributing to the national development.
He asked NPL management to work together with government in order to build trust with each other.
“Let us build up this relationship in order to develop the nation together because sometimes it does not really help to keep on presenting problems without offering solutions and it is high time we intensified this relationship,” he said.
NPL deputy chief executive officer (DCEO) Alfred Ntonga assured the minister of the company’s continued professionalism and fairness in its reporting.
He said NPL had set ambitious goals and “that is to chase after facts” and ensure fairness to everybody.
Ntonga also briefed the minister on NPL profile, operations and the company’s five titles comprising the flagship newspaper The Nation, Weekend Nation, Nation on Sunday, Nation Online and Fuko.
Ndau also visited Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) where he called on the executive management to apply stringent strategies to overcome emerging challenges.
